Looking at the title of this thread `who should get the fantasy 14th place . It must go to the next in line , the team that have proved their worth over a season ......or two !. It is not based on any other consideration and if it was what would that be ?.

The number of supporters, ground capacity, most financially stable and free of debt, the club who gives back the most to community rugby !, the team with the best set up to promote rugby and education giving young players a life after the short window of pro rugby.

Other considerations are geography / location, allowing an even spread throughout the country and considering the RFU six centres of excellence . The new arrangement for RFU / Premiership academies.
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

CVC are not subsidising the Premiership - they own a percentage of the TV rights  and they will take their money every season and will get their money back in a few years - and still own shares.

The Premiership sides are gambling that reduced debt payments plus CVC selling extra TV rights will make up for the money going to CVC.

I cannot argue with your logic - yes 2nd should get the prize but perhaps a play off of the 2nd to 5th team would add excitement to the end of season the £20 million finale (based on possible monies over the following 5 years that team would get) - all fantasy of course because the RFU / PRL will get what they want.
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!
